A Brave Face

ďDear mum, things are a bit tough right now. But donít worry Ė Iím ok. Iíll tell you about it when I get back.Ē

Afghanistan: 2009. Under bright blue skies, a small girl stands and watches the soldier. She smiles, just like his sister...

Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training is complete, combat is a buzz; heís part of a team, and knows his job. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he canít talk about, to anyone. And then, when he returns home, the trouble really begins.

Created from two years of research with ex and serving soldiers, families and health professionals, A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. With compassion and fearlessness, Vamos brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told.

Vamos Theatre is the UKís leading full mask theatre company. Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, the company continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries, taking on challenging themes with poignancy, humour and humanity.

A Brave Face is suitable for audiences aged 12 years and upwards, and is accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike.

***Running time approx. 1hr 15mins with no interval***
